Abstract

Are the contemporary artistic communities still the providers of revolutionary narratives that may shape and support the senses of (national) identity for historical disadvantaged groups, communities, or even nations? To what extent minorities choose to use their depictions through different representations, metaphors and visual constructs, in order to create a sense of European belonging for their multicultural identities, as well as to support their process of social inclusion? What differences are between the revolutionary narratives that depicted the multiple senses of national identity specific to 19th and 20th century, and the contemporary ones, highly influenced by the social and political discourse devoted to various types of immigrants (e.g. refugees, members of transnational minorities), within the context of our European need for morecomprehensive borders? Is the art of today facing a quite different perspective on its autonomy and role in supporting political changes, inthe context of recent debates on “posthumanism”?
